Umm... looks like another self-inflicted collision.
One crew reportedly noted the ship at distance but had gone below to rouse the next watch. I know, it sounds quite incredible. What's even more hair-raising is that not only did the ship's crew not spot the yacht, but after the collision they didn't stop.
The crew saw the freighter... but chose not to keep an eye on it, instead going below to wake the next watch. Me... personally, I'd make damn sure that the freighter was safely gone by before leaving the deck.
If they had been hit by a Catalina... it would have been a miracle..since most Catalinas wouldn't be able to go fast enough to hit them.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
